Below was first revealed back in 2013 and was one of the first indie titles to be showcased for the Xbox One. Since then it's had several different release dates, only to become another victim of the rising scourge of game delays.
Capybara is hardly the only victim. Kentucky Route Zero's fourth chapter
was finally released this month
after the series took an unexpected three-year hiatus. More big budget titles are also being affected. Final Fantasy XV's
September 30th release date has been delayed to November
, making it a little over 10 years since Square Enix first revealed it as a PlayStation 3 exclusive.
Developers should definitely take their time. Delays can often be a good thing as they allow game makers to make last minute improvements that can turn a broken game into a great experience. But it does raise the question: is announcing a game years before it's close to being ready really a smart move?
